are encouraged to test before they gather with family and friends for any
summer activities as an added layer of protection against COVID-19. You should also test if you have any signs of
COVID-19 and stay home if you test positive or you are sick.
“COVID-19 has not gone away. Cases have been increasing over
the last few weeks, and we must use every tool we have before we gather for
summer holidays and activities,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Mysheika Roberts.
“In addition to getting vaccinated and boosted, testing before you gather with
others in a group adds another layer that protects you, vulnerable family and
friends, and children too young to get vaccinated.”
Free COVID-19 test kits also are available at many local
libraries and recreation centers. See other testing providers here.
The best way to prevent
serious illness and death from COVID-19 is to stay up-to-date on COVID-19
